Even better news comes out on July 22 as Sony Pictures Home Entertainment brings you a monster picnic basket crammed full of terror hotties in the form of Urban Legend.
Okay, let’s be honest up front—Urban Legend was a silly little puffball of a film. Not exactly scary by any stretch and just a rather cheesy (though not without its entertaining points) attempt to cash in on the success of Scream, Urban Legend definitely held its own in terms of terror hotties. The list was astonishing even by today’s standards: Alicia Witt, Rebecca Gayheart, Danielle Harris, Natasha Gregson Wagner, even the oft-maligned Tara Reid made an appearance.
And the plot, though weak, managed to generate two sequels and become a full-bore trilogy before finally (most would say belatedly) vanishing off the radar of public opinion. But still…I find myself glad to see it again. Like an old friend, almost, and definitely something better than a lot of the cheesy crap that gets released today.
